UKTV Presentation

Yes - though the UK BBC PSBs - BBC One, BBC Two, CBBC, CBeebies/BBC Four - will remain with Red Bee as they are not BBC Studios channels. So Red Bee still have BBC PSBs, ITV, C4 and I think C5, along with BT Sport and quite a few others?

I don't see BBC World News mentioned so presumably that is staying at Red Bee

That is correct, that contract renewed at the same time as the domestic PSBs.

There's also BBC Persian and BBC Arabic which very recently started coming from Red Bee.

New look Top Gear

Thought all in all it wasn't bad, if still obviously finding its feet. It did feel like it was missing something, Matt LeBlanc was more in the Hammond mold than I expected so perhaps it was missing a James May type. Occasional unnecessary (and sometimes unforgivable) lapses into bigotry aside, there wasn't much wrong with the previous incarnation so there's no need to change a great deal.

Also what is Sabine Schmidtz doing there? It's no place for a woman.

I'm sure Clarkson would be ashamed to have fans like you. Frankly this forum should be ashamed to have a poster like you.
